A highly discussed topic in the community as of late. I tackled a few points that I saw fit that could make it reasonable for TESO to be P2P!

Here at TESOF, we believe that a successful community is built around its people. A community is carried by the strengths of its members and is measured by how it overcomes its weaknesses. The individuals that are admired for their contributions, the ideals that are followed, and the many small deeds accomplished every day are what help communities flourish. A community has a feeling of togetherness... a group identity.

Our dedication to The Elder Scrolls Online and TES gives all of us a banner to gather under. We pride ourselves on being equal among equals, and are overjoyed to have gathered with you under this premise.

To further express our unity and community driven force, we turn back to you for something special...

The Khajiit are a beastfolk living in the south-eastern desert province of Tamriel, Elsweyr. Their origins are debated among scholars. Some hold that they are originally of elven stock, mainly because a sub-species of Khajiit, the Ohmes-Raht, strongly resembles an elf.

However the epic poem Father of the Niben, about the voyages of the early Aldmeri explorer Topal the Pilot, mentions 'cat-demons' when describing Elsweyr ...

The Argonians are an amphibious race of reptillian humanoids inhabiting the province of Black Marsh. In their native tongue, Jel, they call themselves the Saxhleel, which means people of the root.

Very little is known about the Argonians, they are a private race and Black Marsh is an inhospitable land to outsiders. As such there are few accounts of their customs and culture ...

The Altmer, or High Elves, are an elven race inhabiting the Summerset (also called Sumurset) islands in the south-west of Tamriel. 'Altmer' means cultured people and they see themselves as the most civilised culture of Tamriel.

This belief is not unjustified as much of Tamriel's arts of civilisation come from the Altmer. They taught other races writing, law, science and craftsmanship and to this day Altmer influence can be seen in cultures throughout the continent ...

The Aedra and Daedra. Each name conjures distinctive images to the average citizen of the Empire; the Aedra are worshiped as benevolent gods in the form of the Eight Divines and the Daedra are spurned in these modern years by the average Imperial, their veneration continued mostly in secret or in far-flung hideaways away from civilization. Some had been formed by the blood of Anu, whose name varies by culture. Others were born of the blood of Padomay, or as he is occasionally called, Sithis.

The Dunmer, or dark elves, are a race who's homeland is the province of Morrowind.
They are an ashen-skinned people with a hint of blue and have red eyes. 'Dark' in this case should not be taken to mean 'evil', rather it may refer to their dark skin, their sombre nature, or perhaps the curse that gave them their current appearance.
